OK...I was always taught to place 2 bovie pads on all patients over 300 pounds...something about impedance (blah, blah, blah)...well I am PRN at a new facility (different state too) and they have never heard this. The Covidien rep acted like I was nuts. I found something from Covidien stating that obese patients should have an extra pad but nothing terribly informative. I want to do what is best for my patients and try to provide some helpful info at the same time but if my Covidien rep doesn't even know what I am talking about how am I supposed to do this. I need hard evidence. Anyone have any out there? Thanks!
